Japan’s capital is a city unlike any other. A city of HD, 3D, augmented reality and robots. In short, it is the world’s capital of technology.
Tokyo from above
Even at night Tokyo’s streets are congested. It’s a 24-hour city bursting with energy. However, there is a way to escape the traffic and still see the sights: the Shuto expressway. It’s a network of elevated highways rather than one road, rarely more than two lanes wide. It is on these roads that I use controlled acceleration, braking and steering to tackle the tight curves, ascents and drops of Tokyo’s main artery.
It’s a toll road and, when night falls and commuter traffic has gone, it is largely deserted. Taxi drivers and locals would rather not pay the 900 Yen fee for the sheer pleasure of driving it. But I most certainly will.
